To leverage the collective power of the eight EFAI communities, LISC convenes a monthly Food Justice Collaboration. The Collaboration membership consists of the organizations that responded to LISC’s EFAI RFP. These 40 individuals and 24 organizations representing the eight EFAI communities meet monthly under a Community Agreement to build relationships, advocate for policy change, and execute funds development leveraging their collective voice, share best practice and challenges, learn collectively, and develop additional assets and the connection between them to build a sustainable food system that assures food security for all residents.
